Starbucks converts Tazo tea bags to full-leaf tea sachets

Posted by Melissa Allison

Starbucks Melody was onto this last fall, and now a company spokesman has confirmed that in October, Starbucks began converting its Tazo tea bags to a new line-up of full-leaf teas.

During the transition, some stores have run out of the old variety but not yet received the new stock.

Besides coming in sachets that are better for brewing, Tazo teas are using better quality (and harder to find) whole tea leaves, spices and botanicals. Most of the blend flavors will stay the same, with a couple new ones being added in January.
